The Philly Modern Quilt Guild is a growing group of diverse women from around the Philadelphia and New Jersey area. The goal of the guild is to create friendships and share inspiration about the modern quilt movement -both on line and in person.
The newly formed group boasts a board of officers and a planning committee which works to plan monthly meetings and special events. The guild began meeting in February and the members instantly felt a camaraderie that has inspired meetings full of swaps, challenges and show and tell. In addition to these monthly meetings, our quilting connection has been strengthened by Friday evening sewing nights which generate plenty of laughs, advice, project envy and, of course, sewing!
Exciting events await our members this summer. Our big summer event is in August: Stitch ‘n Pitch Night with the Philadelphia Phillies (partnered with the National Needle Arts Association). We’ll be joining knitters and sewers from all over for a night of quilting and baseball at Citizens Bank Park. There will also be a caravan of Philadelphia Modern Quilt Guild members crashing the Hershey Quilt Show!
All of the members are exciting for a big fall kickoff of activities, meetings and quilting challenges to build our chapter. 2010 will prove to be a great year for modern quilters!
At our June Meeting on the 28th from 7-9 pm we will be having a potholder swap.
